A glorious west country escape, Bovey Castle is one of those rare places that can truly offer something for every taste, all in a breathtakingly regal setting. This century old refreshing country estate offers history, excitement, glamour and adventure.
Set in 275 acres within Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle is a beautifully self-contained retreat from the everyday. The exquisite reception rooms, individually-designed bedrooms, suites and lodges are graced with wonderful views over the grounds. Twenty six bedrooms in the east wing have been redeveloped to create twenty two superb new rooms styled in subtle, restful pastel schemes with seductive lighting and comfy oversized beds. Many of the new rooms also have separate seating areas with sofa beds and full size breakfast tables for ‘in-room dining’.
Dining is a delight too, with fine dining in The Great Western restaurant and a less formal menu in Smith’s Brasserie.
Further indulgence can be found in the Elan Spa at Bovey Castle, complete with 5 treatment rooms, a Champagne nail bar, sauna, steam room, hydrotherapy, gymnasium and a stunning indoor pool housed in the orangery. Pampering at Bovey isn’t just for women – men will want to check out The Gentleman’s Quarter, with an extensive selection of treatments and massages tailored for the discerning gent.
There is also wealth of activity on and around the castle’s estate, whether on the internationally renowned J F Abercromby-designed 18 hole golf course, walking, shooting, riding, archery, cycling, cider or sloe gin making or driving on the off road track.
